Our association hosted a conference here. Positives: the hotel is very nice; the rooms are also very nice, clean, roomy and comfortable. The suites are beautiful. Considering this is a learning/training hotel, the staff did a great job. Has an exercise room. Has a Keruig in each room. I liked the electronic "Do Not Disturb" feature. Airport and area shuttle...

The Kirkwood Hotel is a learning hotel for the culinary and hospitality students at the local college. The facility is great. The service is excellent. And the food is amazing. We did an event there, and stayed there for 2 nights. It was quite a comfortable place to stay. The rooms were nice and the beds were comfy. The Class... More

This hotel is a learning "lab" for Kirkwood students. The students work under professional supervision. It was a terrific experience and I would stay there again. The rooms were large and very clean. The decor and amenities were modern and ones that you might see in a 5 star hotel. We ate at the Class Act restaurant which is run... More

Large, spacious rooms. We stayed in the executive suite. Our original room wasn't heating properly and after finally realizing it just wasn't going to get any warmer, we were moved to another room. Each room has a Keurig brewer which is a nice touch. We enjoyed the restaurant for dinner. This is a teaching hotel, but you would never know... More

This is a first Class hotel. Rooms are nicely appointed and the restaurant downstairs ( A Class Act) is top notch. This is a teaching hotel so you have to take things with a gain of salt. There is nothing near this hotel so it's best if you plan to stay in for the night.

What a lovely surprise to find this hotel! It felt as if we were in a city of a much larger size. The rooms were comfortable and beautifully decorated. The restaurant for breakfast was delicious. Great job to all the students and staff that work so hard to make our stay enjoyable.

We stayed 2 nights at the Kirkwood. There are other hotels in the same price range, and lower, that offer more amenities. The hotel was fairly new and had a modern appearance. The room had lots of handy plugins for charging all your electronic devices before heading out the next day and a large pullout section of the desk on... More

You are in for an amazing experience when you choose this hotel for your business or personal stay. This is a teaching hotel, affiliated with Kirkwood Community College, but the staff is nothing but well trained professionals. The level of training among the staff is unmatched. Every detail is perfected to ensure that your stay is flawless. I couldn't find... More

I stayed at The Hotel at Kirkwood Center mid-week in February 2014 for just one night in between business meetings. I knew that this property was associated with Kirkwood Community College and that it is a teaching hotel where students in the hospitality program at the college learn and work. But, I had no idea that it would be such... More

Definitely easy to see why it's the best rated place in Cedar Rapids, IA. Great room, great bar, great restaurant, great staff. It's a learning/training center but you would hardly ever know it if not for the different uniforms.
